Academic Probation

Academic probation is a warning to the student that the quality of work is below the level which might reasonably be expected to make sufficient academic progress towards graduation.

Students are placed on academic probation if:

  1. Their semester GPA is below 1.8
  2. Their cumulative GPA is below 2.0, including any winter or summer courses.
  3. Their major GPA is below a 2.0 during their junior or senior year.

Two or more WF notations will also be considered when reviewing a student’s academic standing

While on academic probation, students may not:

  1. Register for more than 12 credits for a traditional undergraduate or 6 credits for an adult undergraduate
    1. All traditional first-year students will be required to take LA 096, Learning Strategies. All traditional sophomores will be required to take LA 100, Applications of Learning.
  2. Participate in a team sport and recognized student organization
  3. Apply to a Study Abroad or Short-Term Study Abroad Program

To be placed back into good academic standing, students must achieve the minimum required GPA. Students who are unable to achieve this goal may be dismissed from the College for a minimum of two semesters. Students who fail to achieve the minimum GPA, but make significant improvement may be placed on final probation for a second semester at the discretion of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Students may not work under the Federal Work-Study Program while on final probation.
